Marshgate House

8th June 1899

My dear Ethel,

You will be glad to hear that we got home all right last night; it was a squash on the platform, we were lucky to get into the train at all, & were fifteen in the carriage, it was hot.  I hope you girls soon got out of the crowd & got back to school all right.

Baby was in wild spirits when we got home, I undressed her at once & she soon went off to sleep.

I meant to have asked you yesterday for your box key, when I was leaving home I found you had taken mine by mistake & so I was not able to lock my trunk.  Tell Kathleen she must find out from Miss Smith whether she will be able to go to Weybridge after the exam, & write to Auntie about it on Sunday, as she will like to know soon whether to expect her or not.

Helen Kirton is coming to tea with Baby this afternoon; Anna & I rather think of going up to the Academy.

It is just possible that Aunt Fanny & Winny may come over tomorrow afternoon, & any way Auntie has some people coming to dinner.

I hope Kathleen’s face ache is better, she must be sure & take some quinine.

Give my love to her & with the same to yourself

Believe me 
your loving mother 

Eugénie N Sladden
